Who is eligible?

The PSG is open to all Singapore-registered businesses, except for those in ausgeschlossene Branchen (excluded industries). You can check the eligibility criteria on the GoBusiness website.

What are the benefits?

There are many benefits to applying for the PSG, including:

  • Enhanced competitiveness: By staying ahead of the curve with new technologies, you can gain a competitive edge in your industry.
